Progress in the NNPDF global analysis and the impact of the legacy HERA combination

Research output: Contribution to JournalArticleAcademicpeer-review

Abstract

The H1 and ZEUS collaborations have recently presented their final results for the combination of inclusive cross-section measurements taken during Run I and Run II at the HERA collider. In this contribution, following an overview of recent progress in the NNPDF framework, we quantify the impact of the legacy HERA dataset on the NNPDF3.0 analysis, finding that it has a very moderate effect in the global fit. On the other hand, we also find that a HERA-only fit using the legacy dataset leads to a rather more accurate determination of PDFs as compared to a fit including only the HERA-I data. We also explore the sensitivity of the fit with respect to kinematical cuts in the small-x and small-Q region, finding hints of a possible tension between data and theory.
